Corrimal heated pool out of action for annual maintenance and repairs

CORRIMAL Pool will be taking its annual winter break on Monday for scheduled maintenance works.

The 50m heated pool and facilities will close on Monday, August 8 to allow maintenance, including tile repairs and upgrades to the concourse, plant and equipment. The 25m pool was closed on Monday, August 1.

The routine work is part of Wollongong City Council’s annual maintenance program for the 49-year-old pool.

Council anticipates the works to be completed within a month. Depending on weather and other conditions, the 50m pool will reopen on Monday, August 29 and the 25m pool on Monday, September 5.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said Council is committed to upkeeping and servicing facilities, such as public pools, to make sure they’re functional now and for the future.

“Our pools are some of our most popular assets across our city, so we need to take some time to do maintenance works every year,” Cr Bradbery said.

“The planned maintenance also helps reduce unexpected works throughout the swim season, improves safety, and extends the pool’s life.

“As we expect more visitors during our warmer months, we’re taking the opportunity to do our works now, before our busier periods hit. We appreciate the patience of our winter swimmers and regular users of Corrimal Pool while we complete these works.”

In the meantime, Council is encouraging swimmers to visit other pools such as Beaton Park Heated Pool, Dapto Heated Pool or the Continental Pool at Wollongong. More details including pool opening times are available on Council’s pools web page.
